October 2021 in Year 1

In English we have been exploring stories with repeating patterns and created our own version. We also looked at how we could use adjectives to add detail to our writing.

In Maths we have been exploring number bonds to 10. We identified which pairs of numbers added together make 10 and also looked at the subtraction facts that link to each pair.

In Art, we have been learning about the landscape artists Monet and Van Gogh. We learnt about primary and secondary colours, we mixed blue and yellow together to create different shades of green.

In History, we looked at different castles in the UK as well as learning about how houses have changed throughout time. We used a timeline to help sequence the different houses.

In Science, we have been exploring materials and thinking about which materials might float and sink. We also explored which materials are transparent, translucent and opaque.
